Reading Royals come up short in bid to sweep Kelly Cup finals
The Reading Royals will have to wait at least one more night to clinch the Kelly Cup championship.
The Stockton Thunder prevented a sweep by defeating the Royals 4-3 Friday night in Stockton, Calif.
The Royals lead the best of seven series three games to one.
Game five is in Stockton tonight. The puck will drop 10:30 eastern time.
If the Royals fail to clinch tonight, the series will return to Reading for game six on Tuesday.
